1993 San Diego Comicon Costume

Ever wonder what Mantra might look like in real life? Well, in 1993 Malibu decided to answer that question when they contracted JK2 Costumers to create a costume to be worn during the 1993 San Diego Comicon. Most of the images here were taken from Hero Illustrated magazine, although a couple of the better ones are from the costumer's web site. (You might also try their original web site.)

As an interesting aside, Hero Illustrated #5 had a section of various quotes taken from the convention. One amusing quote was:

"This damn costume is killing me." - Mantra, Malibu comics

Well, I'm sure that it's a small price to pay for those fantastic magical powers, right? <grin>

I realize that a lot of these images are small, but many of the images from Hero Illustrated were like postage stamps, so unfortunately I think that this is about as big as they're going to get.
